I wish people gave as much of a shit about each other as they do one dead lion.

Some people do. Beware sample bias. You only hear from people who care. Most don't.

More this, please
 
"Our doors are open and will remain so until every addict who seeks help with their disease has treatment. You will always have a place to go as long as this police department stands."

That's the Police Chief of Gloucester, MA talking about their new drug program. They're calling it the Gloucester Initiative.

Here’s how Chief Len Campanello says it works:
"Gloucester will NOT charge any addict who comes to us for help.
We will fast track them in treatment and support their family. You will receive no judgment; just professionalism, respect and compassion."

The chief says "Addiction is a disease not a crime. We can’t arrest our way out of the epidemic.

The Gloucester Initiative has been in operation now for about a month.

And the Chief just posted this update on Facebook: "We have, as of midnight last night, taken in 55 persons with addiction.
All placed, all in treatment. We received great news today from our first intake...he is over 30 days clean and sober. We continue to encourage persons with addiction to come in and get help."

"The are no catches."

"We feel this program is the first day of the last recovery process a person with addiction will go through. We say this because we tell each of our program intakes that whatever they do after they walk into the police station, we will be there. Whether they are able to succeed or whether they relapse, we will be there. We will help again and again and again until they no longer want help."

"We know there will be setbacks for people."
"We don't care."
"Come back."
"You're still in recovery."

"We know some people will relapse."
"We will not judge you."
"Come back."
"You are still in recovery."

"Just as a cancer can go into remission only to appear later, we know addiction is hard to beat. 60 police officers, 40 Angels, and an entire community will have your back."

"You must do your part, but we will refuse to abandon you, forget you, or ignore you."

"You will receive the respect and dignity you deserve here, without judgment, without coercion, without charges."

"Your life has meaning."

"We are partnering with almost 30 treatment facilities who feel the same way."

"Not one person who has walked through our doors has been turned away."

Chief Len Campanello

“A reporter asked one of my officers last night:
‘Do you see a common thread in all addicts?’

Without hesitation, the officer responded:
‘Absolutely..they're all human beings.’

This is amazing...

For those of you who like #boardgames , you've got to see this - it's a WW2-era version of Monopoly. Kind of cooler than the original version.

I know this is old, old, old...

But it still made me laugh my ass off. "I didn't know that was an option!"

Introduction
If you're looking for Felicity, the voice teacher, you can find my official studio page here:
Felicity Graham Vocal Studios

As for Felicity, the individual...
My primary (mal)function in life is vocal pedagogy and research. I teach singing in general, but also specialize in helping retrain previously injured voices. I get overly enthusiastic about what I do, and can talk about horrific voice disorders for days. (Fair warning: if you ask about it, you will probably get more information than you ever wanted.)

I love life. It's beautiful, it's grand, and if I could, I would sing my way through through each day like a Disney film. 

Gadgets are my friend. If I don't have a smart phone, tablet, e-reader, chromebook and/or other fun things around me, something is very wrong. And yeah, I anthropomorphize my electronics; they love it. 

I'm star-struck. Not Hollywood stars, though. I'm fascinated with space and space travel, and I hope to see colonies on other planets before I leave this one.

If it can't stand up to a double-blind, randomized controlled trial, don't call it science or medicine. It's not. Vitamin C is not a cure for cancer, and vaccination doesn't cause autism. 

Since I cannot see or prove any deity's existence (and neither can anyone else, for that matter), color me agnostic. I don't believe in organized religion, and that includes Libertarianism.

I have no patience for selfish doctrines, be they political or religious. I've had about as much as I can take of "Me First" politics. I could die happy, never seeing another "privatize the [insert government agency here]" post ever again. 

I don't suffer racist fools gladly. Take your "welfare queen" dog whistle and shove it where the sun don't shine. 

Other than that, all I ask is that you engage with me. I'm not here for the fan clubs, I want to make friends. :)
Bragging rights
I'm alive. This is probably more of an accomplishment than you'd think.

Had a lovely Valentine's day meal here. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the service was impeccable. The prix-fixe holiday menu had lots of interesting options - everything we tried was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Dr. Adler has always been helpful, open to dialog, and very pleasant. Couldn't be happier with the experience I've had.
